Advertise on QandO! Posted by: Dale Franks
on Friday, April 14, 2006
I've done the first update on our advertising page in over a year. I was shocked to see that our average daily unique visits per day have jumped from slightly less than 10,000 unique visitors per day last year to an average of 17,335 unique visitors per day! The number of unique monthly visitors has jumped by a full 75%, going from 20,000 unique visitors per month last year to 35,000 unique visitors per month this year.
First, I want to thank all of you for being such a loyal readership, even if you don't much agree with what we post here. For many of you on the left, there's probably very little we say with which you agree. For those of you who are Republican partisans, we probably piss you off regularly, too. Then there are the Paleolibertarians out there, who think we are traitors to the very idea of libertarianism.
Yet, you all keep coming back, reading, and commenting. I think I speak for both Jon and Bruce when I say we really appreciate it.
But, that aside, you know what we'd appreciate more? GIVING US MONEY! Naturally, we'd provide you with advertising in return; we don't expect a free lunch. But QandO is a very good advertising value for the money. If you have a product or service you'd like to sell, please check out our advertising page.
Then send us money. After all, it does cost us money to provide you with the commentary here at QandO. And, while we don't expect the blog to be a major income source, every penny of advertising you buy helps us to keep the site up, and defrays our hideous hosting, bandwidth, and database disk space charges.
While we're on the subject of web site hosting, by the way, please remember that we...well, I...also provide high-quality web site hosting, web and windows application development. Also, QandO is run on the commercial blogging application I designed, .Blog (pronounced dot-blog), and it works really well.
We don't ask for money much here at QandO. We don't even have a yearly fund-raising drive like Andrew Sullivan used to do. But, occasionally, it's important to remind everyone that, while we provide QandO to you for free, it isn't free to us. So, we appreciate any help you can throw our way to keep QandO a going concern.
